to those who laid down their lives for their country at the libya embassy where they didn't have adequate security and where this administration enabled al qaeda and others to take over the government. it was nice of him to take a minute and a half to pay tribute to them giving their lives in the middle of this campaign event before he went on with the celebration. i recall president george w. bush, people here know we certainly had our differences and i certainly disagreed with him on a number of things, but i had great respect for the man. he said, how can i go play golf when i am commander in chief and i have sent soldiers or military into harm's way? it just doesn't feel right for me to be out on a golf course having a good time when our men and women are in harm's way. but it did look like a fun celebration there that president obama was having in las vegas. another article, libyan official said u.s. at fault in attacks. written by r. hawkins 12, september, 2012, he points out that although the head of libya's national assembly has formally apologized for the killing of u.s. ambassad

. will there be further military intervention. the other problem for the white house on this, libya seemed to sort of be buttoned up in so far as we thought that's going to be in the ledger of wins. this unwinds all of that and creates a different narrative. >> maybe, maybe not. you need to wait and see what happens and give it a little time. what john said was right. we still don't really know the details of what went on in tbeni or cairo and the reactive nature of the romney campaign is problematic. what's strange about it is, maybe there is a point, a good point to be made in a couple days about like what happened and what the, you know, what the security measures were and maybe the lack of preparations or something, who knows, but the point is to jump on it right away, not give people a chance to find out what the facts are, it's -- i mean, it really is like -- it suggests a level of desperations and a real need for an opportunity and, you know, i mean the race is winding down so you understand it, but on the other hand, it's not presidential. >> let's be just clear about one thing. on a coupl

's handling of the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. some lawmakers are now claiming the white house misled them by calling the assault, a spontaneous protest that spun out of control. this after sources confirm that u.s. intelligence knew the attack was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridgewashington with more on this. catherine, when we say some lawmakers are making this claim we're referring to high-ranking republicans. what about the democrats? is this bipartisan this criticism in nature? >> reporter: it is now, jenna. good morn. late thursday we had a letter from the senate foreign relations committee, it is pa bipartisan letter and sent to the deputy secretary of state asking about more information in the security situation in benghazi and what they are doing to mitigate the threat and what they knew about the growing threat of al qaeda and islamist militias in the eastern libya. as well as the overrunning of the missions in egypt and also in yemen of the they are ask requesting a briefing right after the current reces
. and in nearby libya, they are on the search for the killers of the u.s. ambassador. we are waiting for the agents to the ground in benghazi. in libbia, the rapid response team of some 50 marines off the coast. two united states navy destroyers, overhead. and yes, libyan government is reportedly saying they have some suspects in custody. at least some critics of the libyan government might be saying, it's about time. back to you, shannon. >> shannon: thank you. there is disagreement about whether or not the attack on the consulate in libya was planned or not. just this morning, susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. said the attack was, quote, spontaneous and that backed up jay carney's claim that an anti-muslim movie is to blame for the attacks. >> we have had the evolution of the arab spring over the last many months. but what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hateful and very offensive video that -- that has offended many people around the world. >> shannon: how intelligence chair mike rogers says it's too early to tell. he says he has inte
of heat on what is happening in libya. republicans are calling the way the attack was handled, quote, a debacle. thank you, very much, great to see you. i would like to start -- >> good to be here. >> with a quote from senator bob corker, briefed by secretary of state clinton and several intelligence leaders late last week about the attacks on benghazi and what was happening in egypt. he said, this is a direct quote -- that was the most useless, worthless briefing i have attended in a long time. this from a senator, not prone it overstatement. what's your take on that? >> i agree. we also in the house received the same briefing. i don't know if they said the same things, but it was the same participants. it was led by our house foreign affairs committee. so many members came, it was a bipartisan meeting. we can't get into the details. but i get more information from fox news than i would get at that briefing. they said, all of this is classified and all of this is sensitive information. you can't talk about t. here's what's happening. we have an administration that wants to just cont
to deal with. especially in libya. this was a well-armed, well-coordinated event. it had both indirect and direct fire, and it had military maneuvers that were all part of this very organized attack. that's concerning. and that means we are going to have to make sure, working with the libyans hopefully, that these folks are brought to justice very swiftly. we cannot allow this to stand for the united states. egypt -- and i caution some in egypt, even the ambassador talked about this film being the impetus for this. i'm not convinced yet. we saw with the cartoons in the past that months went by and then there were information operations put together around those cartoons to incite violence. we have a lot more questions about what exactly happened in egypt if, in fact, that there wasn't some information operation to incite violence against the united states embassy. and i think we -- before we draw any conclusions about what the spark or the trigger of that event, i think we need to know those answers so we can appropriately ask the egyptians what happened and why they didn't secure the
worships are on the move. two navy destroyers are off the coast of libya because of a precautionary plesh measure. all of this toms -- precautionary -- all of this comes -- because of a precautionary measure. officials want to know if that attack was coordinated to mark the september 11th anniversary. there are fueling reports that the film made are making them angry. >>> well, the attacks on the u.s. embassies and the consulate in libya could have a big effect on the elections. and mitt romney is being criticized for remarks he made shortly after the protest started the the -- protest started at the embassy. coming up for you at 7:15, what mitt romney is how saying about the attacks and how president obama is eroo -- is responding. >>> a public memorial service will be held this morning for the chp officer killed in the line of duty last week in alamo. dignitaries will include governor jerry brun. claudine wong is live where hundreds of friends, family of officer kenyan youngstrom will be behind me. >> reporter: they do have some chairs set upout side. they expect 2500 people in the main
overnight. >> yeah. >> we, of course, have been focused on libya. yesterday we were focused on the political scrap that was taking place while we had chaotic situations across the globe. >> i'd say it was more than a scrap. >> i think it was a terrible moment, maybe a defining moment in the campaign, of course what's going on in egypt right now. is equally troubling. and i suspect that when the streets clear, perhaps the most troubling aftereffect of this will be what has not been said by the muslim brotherhood or the leaders of egypt. this morning we'll have to get to that later because this morning more breaking news. now out of yemen. >> yep. witnesses say hundreds of demonstrators have stormed the u.s. embassy in the capital of sana'a. the a.p. reports protesters breached the security corridor around the embassy grounds but have not entered the building housing diplomatic offices. officials with yemen's government says no one was killed. the assault on the u.s. embassy in yemen comes just one day after four americans were killed at the u.s. consulate in libya and a mob of demonstrators s
alerted and we alerted the egyptians as well. bill: what about libya then? the violence, what many describe as a coordinated assault, all hoe though the white house will not call it that. what did they know about libya and why it is being describeds a terrorist attack. that is coming up with kt mcfarland, steve hayes and a load of other. >> call it the tale of the dueling tapes. we're getting new reaction from the romney camp after the governor's comments at a private fund-raiser were leak need yaw. now a recording from president obama's past is also getting some attention. the then state lawmaker in this video talks about spreading the wealth. >> i think the trib is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because i actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure that everybody's got a shot. martha: raises a lot of philosophical questions about the differences in this campaign. chief political correspondent carl cameron riding the bus with the romney campaign. and he is live from
that of we have been talking about. while in libya, thousands are threatening a revolution to get rid of militias there and extremists. catherine herridge joining us for the latest. >> let's go to pakistan, the maker of the youtube trailer and the senior member of the government in pakistan announcing a $100,000 reward for anyone who kills him and what's key here, the minister is calling on al-qaeda and the taliban to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack th
focused on. he didn't say the word terror in regard to libya. but talked about the freedom of speech right we have in this counselry. >> i know some who ask, why don't we ban such a video. the answer is enshrined in our laws . our constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states, countless publicications provoke offense. like me, the majorit of the merrence are christian and yet we don't ban blasphemy on our sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander of chief of our military i accept people call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> steve: if the president continues to talk about freedom of speech we have in this country, that's true. but why the dumb movie? he kept referring to the movie as the cause of the movie. the administration said it is nootnot true. >> gretchen: i can think of countless other examples of freedom of speech . maybe he shouldn't have chosen himself of people speaking poorly approximate him. is that a plan because of the election? some people say yes including newt gingrich. >> hillary clin
